“Is it possible to be a home base CTA and manage it virtually?”

A recent email exchange with a client:

Client: How is everything? I had a question about choosing a business model… Is it possible to be a home base CTA and manage it virtually?

Covel: What do you mean?

Client: I was reading the “How to become a CTA” article in dropbox. It says you can save huge amounts of money by starting the business out of your home. I was wondering if that is actually realistic…

Covel: Why does the physical location matter?

Client: I don’t think it should matter, and I don’t think people would really care as long as the track record was good and they’re making money. I was just thinking… what if I’m able to raise a 1-2 million in my first year and clients know I’m managing the money at HOME. Just thinking about their reaction and wondering if I would lose credibility. That is more the negative side though, some people may think it’s pretty cool.

Covel: I have a pic of the home Bill Dunn started his firm in. I have visited over the years many CTAs working out of their home.

Client: Awesome Thanks a lot for sharing that with me! That eliminates any insecurity I had.

“I have been a listener since day one…”

Feedback in:

Hi Mike, I love your podcast. I have been a listener since day one and also I have several of your books. Thanks for the great interviews. I appreciate your honesty. Your honesty and ability to question things are what bring trust. Anyway, in the podcast there was discussion of a “bot” or deep fake of you or Michael-Covel-like content. I noticed my local library has a book summary of your book. I wondered if you got royalties on that (if you feel comfortable sharing such information). I tried to find it by searching, but it was hard to determine. From what I have found, it appears as though you do not because it is “someone else’s interpretation”. What is the truth and how do you feel about it? Would it be worth it/make sense to put out a “summary” of your own to capture that? Or an “endorsed summary”? On a side note, I have probably bought a dozen books of the guests of your podcast because they have been on your show. Is there any way to help you get credit or show that value you bring in order to help you?

Everyone can buy my books here. Best way to support the cause!
